Theresa from Jamaica, NY sent in a wonderful recipe a few days ago called Orange Dreamsicle Cake which I can't wait to try; but I do have a question first: so I really don't need to add eggs or oil to the cake mix?
Lynn from Chico, CA
You know that is a good question! Please let me know too! Thanks!

I must have missed that recipe - sounds good - please repeat. (04/04/2006)
Editor's Note: There is a link above for the recipe that Lynn is referring to. Just click on Orange Dreamsicle Cake.
There are "9" recipes on www.cooks.com. Hope this is the one you are looking for.
Make cake mix according to box. Make holes in cake while still hot. Make orange Jello with 1 cup boiling water. Pour Jello over cake while still hot. Cool cake completely. Make vanilla instant pudding with only 1 cup milk, add vanilla, orange extract and whipped topping. Mix and spread on cake. Refrigerator.
It says mix cake according to directions. If it calls for eggs and oil, use them. (04/04/2006)
If you read the directions carefully, the instructions state "mix cake following instructions on box" which includes whatever ingredients indicated. Most box mixes require egg or oil. After cake is made, then you follow the instructions with the jello, etc. You can do this with most any flavor of jello, and boxed white or yellow cake mix.(04/04/2006)
Well actually I haven't heard of a cake without oil but for eggs there are substitutes.
The egg(S) are the reasoning behind a rich moist and fluffy cake. There are substitutes, though. You can use vegetable oil as a substitute or egg powder. You see i am worried right now because it is my mother's birthday and instead of buying a cake I want to make her one but the problem is I'm out of eggs. So I'm worried. Good luck with the cake and happy eating! (07/18/2008)
